I've literally seen dozens of shows at the Riv. I love the place. The problem is that a packed show tends to have a lot of SRO. I saw Todd Rundgren there a number of times, but on one occasion, standing in line before the show, the girl I was going with broke up with me. I proceded to enjoy (albeit with a little too much vodka) the show so much that I remember very little of it. There's a barrier surrounding the dance floor, and at some point, I hit the back of my neck against it, and gave myself such a nasty whiplash that I was unable to move for weeks. To top it off, I only remember the first three songs. I don't even know how I got home...

Those were young and really stupid days.
